Social Security

Dear George:

Social Security ills have been caused by borrowing from the fund. Collect the IOU's and the problem would disappear. Stop supporting any programs other than Social Security from its fund. Cut the benefits to immigrants and to people who do not want to work. Social Security was designed as a retirement supplement for the elderly and the children up to age 23 if a parent precedes them in death. That benefit has been reduced to 18 for children or graduation from high school.

It amazes me that we show more compassion to foreign countries and immigrants than we do for the support of the American businesses, families, soldiers and abandoned youth.

Our financial policies and spending are out of control. There is no accountability and no respect for the people who are footing the bill.

Please do not send me a canned response. It is just representative of what I am talking about government (who really gives a rip) blah, blah, blah)

Just do what is right for a change.

Janet
Age 55

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.
